Product description

XC300 is the latest product series of modular PLCs (small controllers) from Eaton. The field level of the devices can be expanded with the I/O system XN300, and a multitude of interfaces perfectly supplement existing capacities allowing it to serve as a communication node. Coupled with its compact design and the touch panel series, the XV300 allows for the implementation of more slender and state-of-the-art automation concepts, particularly in series equipment manufacturing.
Equipped with a powerful processor, the XC300 provides cycle times of below 1 ms. This increases the equipment cycle and therefore the productivity of the system. Alongside extensive features, the PLC has up to three Ethernet, two CAN interfaces and 4 digital inputs/outputs. The Ethernet interfaces can be operated independently of each other, and permit segmented communication in equipment or SCADA networks. For users, this means they can optimally adapt security and output to system requirements and prevent unauthorized access to the equipment.
The XC300 is programmed via CODESYS 3 software and supports current standards in communication technology, from CANopen, easyNet and Modbus RTU through EtherCAT, Modbus TCP, Ethernet/IP as well as OPC UA/Scada. An integrated WEB server enables visualizations to be displayed on all HTML5-capable browsers. This allows for display and operation on all mobile devices, like for example, smartphones or tablets. In addition, standardized data exchange via the communication protocol OPC-UA (OPC Unified Architecture) allows the transfer of data between equipment (M2M communication), providing the user with remote systems operation and maintenance at all times. XC300 can be seamlessly integrated into existing automation solutions and allows for the incorporation of new equipment and systems concepts based on Industry 4.0.
